Nothing to the fishies... It was 5 out of a 35 gallon tank. But when
the contractor said "If it was tap water I'd say sand and refinish, but
it's dirty water, so best to rip it out." who was I to argue.
In fact, ripping and replacing is faster and less intrusive!

Are you on concrete? A few gallons of water shouldn't have damaged
oak flooring unless it was soaked in it. How long was it wet?
I found a box of that at a contractor's garage sale and picked it up
for $25. It is now in my entryway butted up to a horrid, old maroon
carpet. Ithink the old carpet makes it look even better. <g>
Painted baseboard makes a nice contrast to the wood.
Aquariums can be mighty expensive.

We don't know. Several hours, anyway. Discovered it at 6 am on a Monday
About 30 sq ft of 1.5" boards are seriously cupped.
It's sure purty lookin'
We're going to go get some paint chips this morning. I still have the
flooring sample. But we can wait till the floor's down before making
final colour decisions.
No shit, Sherlock. I got a deal a couple of weeks ago on some fish I've
wanted to have again (last had them when I in high school), tiger
oscars. Fellow had a pair he was letting go for $10 each.
10 - 10.5 inches long, they is. They'd sell retail for $100 - $150
Put them in the 35 gallon tank and realized it was just too small.
Yeah. Dirty water he said. Bacteria, fungus...
We collected the paint chips this morning, and we's of the same frame
of mind. High contrast. We are thinking about one accent wall. We can
wait until the floor is down before picking colours. Leaning towards a
very subtle, very pale blue.
Chuck you, Farley!
Oscars ain't no effeminature of any kind! They is the Labradors of the
aquarium world, 'scept they don't shed.
What other fish will wag its tail when it sees you, and perform "UP!"
to get fed?
Oh, I learned about salty water tanks 35 years ago, C-less. WAY too
spendy for me.
Freshwater puffer was what killed my first oscar... He got all the
deaders from the other tanks, guppies, etc, and I just forgot...
Mouthed the puffer a couple of times, spit it out, went into
convulsions, dead inside of 15 minutes.
35 years ago, and I still remember it frame by frame...
Pergo is not "fake" stuff. The top 1/32 to 3/8" is real hardwood. The rest
is mystery wood. It's like veneered plywood with two exceptions: The
substrate is layered in different directions to virtually eliminate warping
and it's covered with an impregnable finish.
you have to distinguish what you're both talking about.
traditional pergo is laminate flooring.
pergo also has hardwood line too, and that top layer is wood. however, the
usual pergo flooring does not have a wood surface.
Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product, fused
together with a lamination process. Laminate flooring simulates wood (or
stone, in some cases) with a photographic applique layer under a clear
protective layer. The inner core layer is usually composed of melamine resin
and fiber board materials. There is sometimes a glue backing for ease of
installation. It has the advantages that it is durable, as compared with
carpet, and attractive, at a lower cost as compared to natural floor
